A Spiritual Issue with the 'Disappearance of Moral Knowledge'

by R. Scott Smith

Dallas Willard argues in his new, posthumously published book, The Disappearance of Moral Knowledge, that due to various philosophical and institutional factors, we have lost a body of moral knowledge in the West.

This paper considers one institution, the church, and a related, spiritual aspect to the loss of moral knowledge. The paper then explores what Christians can do about that particular aspect.
